MYSON - BHADRESWARA TEMPLES

Introduction

In several countries of East and Far-East, there are hundreds of Hindu temples of great antiquity, built by illustrious rulers of Indian origin. In the modes of construction, performance of worship, conduct of festivals and naming of shrines, Indian's and Hinduism strike the eye and thrill" the frames of the culture-loving patriotic sons of India. Though daubed with alien culture - external or internal, and breathing un-Indian air, they have retained the Indian tradition to an astonishing degree that compels adoration. Siva predominates over other divinities in regard to the number of shrines built and creed professed. The unquestioned supremacy of Siva among the TRIO is quite discernable; for, many of the images on ceilings and walls depect Siva adorning the highest seat in the assemblage of gods like Brahma; Vishnu, Moon, Sun, Narayana etc. The myths and legends are given their due significance in the inscriptions and sculptural adornments. Above all, Siva was regarded as the national deity and reverence was extended in accordance with it. It is but natural then that Linga, the representation of the Lord is duly recognised and used as an object of veneration in temples. The kings of Indian origin were staunch Saivates, and in the tradition of few of other counterparts in India, they named the temples after them like Bhadreswara temple after the Bhadravarman, the redoubtable king of Champs, an integral part ;,the present South Vietnam. Moreover, it was the customary practice of that country to designate the holy places after the rulers.
